Baby Blue Online reports:
Counsel for the Virginia churches that voted to separate from the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia as well as counsel for The Episcopal Church (TEC) have received calls indicating that TEC’s appeals have been granted as expected by the Supreme Court of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Originally the Diocese and The Episcopal Church were granted a hearing (called a "writ panel argument") prior to being granted their appeals, but that now the appeals have been granted without the hearing. These appeals are for the rulings handed down by Judge Randy Bellows in Fairfax Circuit Court last year. Stay tuned for updates.
